After an interview he gave to “People” magazine, rumors are starting to surface that Mark Ballas‘ back injury, which has already caused many problems for him during the last seasons of “Dancing With the Stars”, may keep him out of DWtS Season 23.
Ballas injured his back a few seasons ago, and actually had to step out for a week during season 22 because he had aggravated his injury.
He came back and continued to rally through the dancing shows, but that may have caused more health problems for him in the long run.
When “People” asked him about continuing to DWtS Season 23, Ballas said “I’m not sure yet. This one just finished and my back still hurts. Thinking that far ahead is kind of … you know, it’s hard.”
Fans love Mark Ballas on the popular reality show, and it would definitely be a shame to see him step out for a season. However, at least he can then count on more time to plan his wedding, as he recently announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend BC Jean.
